About Male Hormones

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. In men, FSH is responsible for stimulating spermatogenesis – the process of forming new sperm


Luteinizing Hormone (LH)

Luteinising hormone (LH) is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. In men, LH hormone stimulates the Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone.

 

Testosterone

Testosterone is the major androgen in the testis that regulates spermatogenesis – the process of forming new sperm. If your testosterone is low, you may have low sperm production, reduced sex drive and erectile disfunction. 

 

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA-S)

DHEA-S is the most abundant steroid hormone in the blood. It is secreted by the adrenal glands and it is a precursor for several important hormones, including testosterone.


Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG)

Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) is a protein in the blood that binds to sex hormones like testosterone, meaning that they are unavailable to be affect the cells. Measuring the level of SHBG in your blood gives important information about your levels of free or unbound hormones which are biologically active and available for use.
